The art crafted by Fanch Ledan, known today primarily by his Breton nickname “Fanch,” is inextricably tied to the events of his life. While a student in Paris at the Ecole Superieure des Sciences Commerciales in 1968, Fanch’s artwork was accepted by several galleries and major European exhibitions. He soon abandoned commercial design in favor of full-time studies in painting and fine art. In 1972 he entered the MBA program at Sacramento State University and started to display his original acrylic paintings in galleries in California and New York.
By intentionally leaving the interiors uninhabited by human figures, he invites the viewer to imagine himself in this balanced and harmonious space. Since 1975, when he completed his first editions of lithographs, he has enjoyed numerous one-man exhibitions and group shows in galleries around the world. Fanch’s artwork has been admired by collectors internationally from Japan and Australia to Europe and the United States. Below is a partial list of his collectors, publishers and some of the corporate commissions.
